The cumulative number of companies using the MI platform “miHub (R)” exceeds 100. Accelerating adoption by companies other than material and chemical manufacturers
The MI platform “miHub” provided by MI-6 Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Motohiro Kizaki, hereinafter referred to as MI-6) has been introduced by more than 100 companies. overview
“miHub” is a materials informatics (MI) platform that realizes data-driven research and development through data analysis and accumulation of know-how. This product allows researchers to use MI without any code to quickly predict physical properties and identify optimal material synthesis conditions. Furthermore, through a complete renovation in January 2024, the know-how of experiments and analysis, which tends to be isolated to individuals, can now be utilized throughout the organization.

In addition to functions that enable compositional optimization and physical property prediction without code, and functions that naturally accumulate know-how by linking analysis and experimental plans and sharing them with the team, MI is ideal for research sites where individual product development is required. Thanks to the presence of a specialized team that supports its use, it has received high praise from companies in a wide range of industries, including material and chemical manufacturers, as well as steel, electrical equipment, and pharmaceuticals, and the number of companies that have introduced it has exceeded 100.
The reason why many companies have praised us is because our design takes advantage of our actual material development experience and MI promotion experience.
Many people have commented on why they decided to introduce miHub, saying, “The design makes use of my actual material development experience and MI promotion experience, and I could imagine that we could use it at our company.” I am receiving it.
Specifically, it is possible to optimize compositions and predict physical properties without requiring programming expertise, to learn the know-how of others by visualizing the experimental planning and analysis process, and to facilitate trial and error in experimental planning as a team. The point is that it has a system that naturally leads to sharing know-how. The unique value of miHub comes from the experience our product managers and implementation support staff have gained through material development and MI promotion work.

Many of our staff involved in miHub development and customer support have been involved in materials development, and many have been active as promoters since the early days of MI’s use in the private sector. None of us had ever used MI before, and we didn’t know much about the specialized knowledge of MI.As we worked through the process of learning on our own and gaining the understanding of those around us, we realized that it was easy for researchers to use MI. He has a strong belief that people who do not have specialized knowledge of MI should be able to evaluate research results, and that people who will be using MI in the future will face the same hurdles. We are carefully approaching various issues through miHub to avoid any obstacles. miHub provides solutions for tackling “MI in a broad sense” to realize DX of essential R&D operations.
miHub is designed to allow researchers to focus on hypothesis testing in research and development by easily utilizing MI technology. It can be used without learning programming languages ​​or statistical terminology, and its intuitive and easy-to-understand operability makes it easy for anyone to use. Companies with active data scientists are able to utilize MI efficiently throughout the organization by separating them based on research themes.
In addition, miHub is equipped with functions that allow it to be used not only by researchers but also by surrounding team members and managers, so that the trial-and-error process and experimental know-how are not turned into a black box, and the MI analysis results can be used by the team. be able to interpret and make decisions.

Until two years ago, our company had approached MI by defining it as “composition optimization and physical property prediction using statistics and machine learning technology,” but in order to become established as an organization in actual material development sites, I realized that this alone was not enough. In order to realize DX of essential research and development operations, we are actively expanding the definition of MI and approaching it as a “broadly defined MI” that includes experimental planning and knowledge sharing. By reconsidering MI in a broader sense, miHub has evolved into an integrated solution for data management and knowledge management. Through miHub, we provide an experience that changes the way trial and error occurs in daily experiments, dramatically improves productivity, and accelerates innovation across the organization.

Recent research shows that the combination of domain-experienced and knowledgeable researchers and data science improves the accuracy of experimental design. The core issue of R&D DX is for “people” and “data science” to cooperate in their respective areas of expertise. miHub functions as a “hub for materials development and data science” and contributes to the development of the chemical and manufacturing industries with the mission of maximizing the potential of
What is miHub?
miHub is a materials informatics (MI) support platform for data-driven optimization of materials development processes. We will centrally manage data collection, analysis, and sharing, and provide functions to streamline research and development. This allows researchers to advance data-driven materials development more quickly and
